New Health in All Policies Evaluation Guidance Can Help Local Health Departments Looking to Conduct HiAP Assessments

Jan 22, 2021 | Anu Varma

Local health departments (LHDs) are increasingly investing in Health in All Policies (HiAP) to ensure that non-health policies are created and implemented with health and equity considerations in mind. While many LHDs have begun working toward HiAP in their communities, few have conducted robust evaluations to understand the impacts of investing in this public health practice. To support the development of evaluations, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), in partnership with the Florida Department of Health at Pinellas County, and the Multnomah County Health Department, OR, developed a HiAP Evaluation Guidance Tool for LHDs using the seven implementation strategies and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials’ (ASTHO’s) four implementation phases as a framework. The goal of this evaluation tool is to provide LHDs, local government staff, and other community-based organizations with example metrics to help build an evidence base for HiAP practice.
